We woke up at 2:30 AM to see it. I took a few photos with my little digital camera

Our dog was ecstatic to be on the roof so late. The sky was perfectly clear

In the morning, at 5 AM, I could see the end on my bedroom window ( no camera then). The brown (not amber) part was at the very bottom – a different angle than it started.

And now on with this eventful, shortest day of the year!

Solstice to come at 6:38 PM, EST
